10 Ways Google Will Rock Your World

#10: Google’s Compute Engine

Google is aiming for the enterprise cloud market, and going into direct competition with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

#9: Google Goggles

Google’s Internet-connected glasses are now real enough that access is available to developers who pay $1,500.

#8: Google+ History

Google+ is laying plans to capture details about your online activities and hold them in a private area. Then you can decide what if any you’d like to share.

#7: The Nexus Q

Google takes another run at home entertainment with the Nexus Q, a streaming media device that joins with the company’s cloud services.

#6: Android 4.1 – Jelly Bean

The next version of the Android OS will have offline voice dictation and maps, improved search, notification features and a whole lot of other goodies.

#5: Google Voice Search

Google Voice Search is a part of Jelly Bean, but with the inclusion of Google Now, it’s even better! It’ll learn from you and your searches and work towards automating your life.

#4: The Nexus 7

The Nexus 7 is a 7-inch Jelly Bean tablet that’s being positioned to compete with the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet at the $199 price point.

#3: Google Play Content

Google Play will be ramping up their content through partnerships with Disney, Sony, Paramount, NBC, Sundance and Bravo – just to name a few.

#2: Chrome for iOS

If you want your bookmarks to synch between your computer and your iOS devices, Chrome on iOS makes that possible.

#1: Google Docs Offline

Want to access your Google Docs when you’re offline? A new feature sets that up for you.

    Thanks so much for staying with your podcast thing, Cali. A burst of true courage in the wilderness! You will see your best and most beautiful dreams come true, there is no doubt!

    Recently, you requsted followups to Battlestar Galactica, for amusement, the Firefly series. It ran for only one season, on Fox. Still, it and the film made from it, Serenity, are worthy of your personal attention, thought, and time. All are on Netflix streaming video right now. Deep love, da$& great acting, and intensely clever writing, made this a true SF classic.. As Annora said, “You really should, dear.”

    Will there be more, who knows. One can hope there will be. Write back if you feel like it. :)

    Great list, and you definitely picked the best one for number 1! I love using Google Docs and am always surprised when someone wants to collaborate and NOT use Docs.
